And now, a note from Faran... Maybe this is dating me, but here's a list of the Nickelodeon shows I watched religiously: Hey, Dude! Salute Your Shorts Nick News with Linda Ellerbee The Secret World of Alex Mack None of these shows involved fashion, despite the fact that 11-year-old me was obsessed with W, Vogue, and Mademoiselle (again, maybe this is dating me). But now it seems Nickelodeon is climbing off the horses and summer camp flagpoles, and onto the fashion bandwagon. After its announcement of Lily Collins as fashion news correspondent, and after its Unfabulous star Emma Roberts signed a campaign deal for Dooney + Bourke, they crafted a TV show about a fashion company called True Fashion that hires a teenage girl to run their juniors department. The good news is that the girl will be played by Keke Palmer, the adorable star of Akeela and the Bee seen at left. The bad news is that... well... maybe it's not "bad" news, but do you want your 11-year-old daughter or sister having fantasies about working in fashion? That's a loaded question, and I'm grateful and thrilled to actually work in the fashion industry, but still - worth discussing. And for the record, here are the Nickelodeon shows I watch religiously now: iCarly Drake + Josh The Backyardigans - I can't explain it, I think the spooky cartoon hippo is amazing. xo F.
